The walls at Dunwoody Springs Elementary School recently came to life as students created a museum exploring subjects such as history, weather and current issues.
The project was intended to showcase to parents what project-based learning – an approach where students research real-world problems and come up with solutions — looks like as the school prepares to transition to Fulton County Schools’ charter system. That change will allow teachers more flexibility in the classrooms.

Patrice Dawkins-Jackson, Talented and Gifted Instructional Support for Dunwoody Springs, said the students’ museum incorporated hands-on learning and various curriculum in creative ways.
